Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

They look great, and it provides a consistency to the enchanting look.

Can't wait to see your finished set. Blue will be great - or red. ;-)

Kathy  :)

Wow Kim what a collection you have there....they look great !!!

Hope you have a nice week-end, I'm going to see Sarah Jessica Parker and the girls with my girls can't wait and of course a Cosmo after the

Take care,
Kathy :)

You certainly have a knack for painting things. They look so romantic and pretty.


Hi Kim,

I love your collection and the way you have them hung looks perfect :) Can't wait to see your table!



Hi Kim,
They look great. I love your stairs. I have carpet on mine and would love to have them like yours. Have a great day.



I love this look. You are so great!


I have a small wall of mirrors...I think I may update them with this technique as well. I've grown bored with how they look now. This just might be the ticket to make me love them again. lol



Your mirrors are fantastic! I have a few that I need to paint white and hang near my front door. Will share when that's done. ~Adrienne~


It is so fun to be able to change things up when we grow tired of them. I think the white looks so lovely and so very cottage. Fantastic job!! :)


Hi Kim,
I love your mirrors and the way you painted them. Your stairs are lovely too, really looks crisp and clean and sets off the mirrors.
Happy weekend ;)


Love this Kim! I have always felt mirrors were greater in numbers. All those pretty reflections! Your sense of style is genious!


I see I am really crapping out with spelling errors today! Make that GENIUS!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

I love your mirrors, Kim.


Kim, Loving the mirrors! I have a penchant for them, too. Have a wonderful weekend! :-)


Those look great!

Toni from NC

Very pretty and elegant!


Wonderful! Fantastic! Can`t wait to see the table and chairs. Have a wonderful and sunny weekend :))

Lorelei from Germany


Oh, CUTE! You have the best ideas!


Looks like my staircase...only I wish I had a collection of mirrors like yours. I love them!

And I love coming to your blog and hearing "Theme from a Summer Place."

Can't wait to see the "new" table and chairs!!


Your mirrors look great! I'll bet they add so much pretty light to your stairwell.


Hi Kin,
most beautiful collection that mirrors have, I would not know which to choose!
Shhh ... I look forward to seeing the chairs and table! ;-)

Saludos, Ana!



I love the mirrors! What a GREAT idea. They are beautiful.

Would love to see all of them from a distant shot.

Blue on the outdoor furniture will be pretty. I'm anxious to see it!



Love the fresh paint job on the mirrors.
Am I too late to suggest a color for the table/chairs? What about the beautiful aqua color letters on the cover of Romantic Country on your sidebar?


I really like the combination of rich green wall paint, with the warm wood tones, and your white mirrors. Those colors combined with all of the wonderful relecting going on is a great decorating treatment.

Hi Kim,
I have a mirror wall in my stairway too! Mine is painted black and I'm getting ready to slap a coat of white or maybe robins egg blue on all of them! With lots of flaking and chipping of course! Yours look terrific!


They look nice and fresh with the white paint.


Kim, I love those! Wish I had a spot for mirrors too, but I just don't have the space for them. Those look great, girlfriend!



Hi Kim. I don't know if you read my blog very often so I just wanted to make sure you knew about my front porch party. I would love for your beautiful porch to be included. Hope you'll join in the fun. The details are on my blog.
Hugs, Rhondi

Sweet Cottage Dreams

I really love the cottagey white paint against the green walls. Magnificant!!! I have some mirrors on my stairwell, however I need to have a darker paint to make them POP! Great job there, Miss Kim!!!!!! LOL about painting everything and even Maggie! Doogs gets paint in his "skirt" whenever the paint can comes out. Silly dogs anyways.....


I love what you've done with the mirrors:>) You are so creative.

I love groups of mirrors. They sparkle and reflect the daylight coming in through the windows...Love the way you have painted them...


Dear Kim,
I mentioned you on my post today. I so admire how you can take the old and with a bit of paint, a touch of love and your flair for decorating create a beautiful treasure. I found some consignment shops on Friday in Cape Cod, and had to link people to your gorgeous inspiration. Karen

I love your mirrored wall, Kim! The white looks gorgeous! Interesting you used flat paint ~ I may have to try that.
Can't wait to see the table and chairs and the color you chose!


Just beautiful!! I always wanted to do something like this! Pretty! Have a lovely Sunday! Vanessa

Dear Kim - your wall of mirrors must bring a nice light to the space! How functional and yet so unexpected! Lovely!
Thanks for sharing!
Take care!


Love them!! What a difference!! Daisy is so very versatile!!


This looks just fabulous!! Why don't you come up north and decorate my house?


Oh, I love your mirrors in the stairway! Would you kill me if I copied this some day? I love it! What a great way to bounce light around.


I remember the last time you showed these and I totally stole your idea for my own hallway. :) It's such a fun look!

i love your wall of mirrors. i, too, have my entry. yours are much prettier, tho!
hugs, bj


What a great way to dress up a hallway. I love all the differnt shades of white. i would love to see the wall from afar, do they look different at different times of the day? Enjoy your beautiful creative work. Kelley

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

Thank You Ida!

  • Kim I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us into your sweet home! I absolutely loved being there and looking around with you. Your hospitality and sweet spirit make the home even more beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that one day I too will have my "dream come true!" ~ Ida - MOPS Member

Thank You Jane!

  • "I just discovered your blog and am blown away with the comfortable, almost nostalgic feel of it...almost like finding a long-lost friend after many years apart...somehow familiar, but all so exciting and new." ~ Jane

Thank You Dena!

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it. I'm not sure that I ever looked at a teacup or saucer and saw such detail and beauty in it." ~ Dena

Thank You Grace!

  • "I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me. Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

Thank You Francesca!

  • "Oh my! I have just stepped into heaven. A nostalgic, magic, getaway place where folk love one another and life is sweet. Kim, you will probably never know just how many hearts you have touched with your site. " ~ Francesca

Thank You Kathy!

  • "I visited my friends with their tasteful beige homes and sometimes questioned if there was anyone else in this world who loved the things I did. Then I found Daisy Cottage and a whole community of other women who shop the side of the road, paint their furniture fun colors, and aren't afraid to fill their homes with touches of whimsy and fun. What a relief! We aren't alone! I'm not alone. Thanks for all your inspiration and for confidently sharing your home and the idea that we can have fun with our decorating. I never get tired of visiting here Kim." ~ Kathy

Thank you Rue!

  • "That hankie is like you and your blog Kim. In the middle of all of the other beautiful hankies, it's the one that stands out and makes you feel at home." ~ Rue

Thank You Jeanette!

  • "Sigh.... between your music, red and yellow mellow feeling and wonderful writing I just feel so calm. What would I do without you in the morning with my cup of coffee." ~ Jeanette

Thank You Lenna!

  • "My eyes have been opened to a world I never knew existed. Such vibrant creativity, such caring community: it literally takes my breath away. After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Rose!

  • "What I love best about Daisy Cottage is Kim. I love the way you appreciate every good thing in life and embrace joy in every moment." ~ Rose

Thank You Lisa!

  • "Here's how I can best describe into words how your blog made me feel. You know when you wake up in the morning and there's an early morning thunderstorm and every room in your house is as dark as night? Then, the rain and thunder stop and the sun comes shining through all the windows and you just know it's going to be a beautiful, sunshine day? Well, that's how finding Dear Daisy Cottage made me feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kim. You blessed my day and may God do the same for you." ~ Lisa B.

Thank you Pamela!

  • "I am so touched by your words and photographs. Whether in happy or sad times, you inspire my heart and soul. We all need each other's light and you offer us that dose of sunshine." ~ Pamela

  • "Your blog has helped me start to see the beauty in life again." ~ Joy

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne

Thank You Tracy!

Thank you Karen!

  • "Your humble spirit has not changed through your many posts here in Blogland. You have been blessed with a special gift and I am very thankful you share it with us." ~ Karen

Thank You Betty Jo!

  • "You truly inspire me to do whatever I can in my own little nest. I've always been an artistic dreamer, but you've enlarged my dreams with your way of seeing." ~ Betty Jo
